I worked at AutoZone full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The stock is steadily climbing. Very fun culture as a whole across all departments. CEO is in the building and very friendly. The organization consistently gives back to the community through various charities. Several volunteer opportunities.

Cons

A majority of the individual department leaders are unaware of what their subordinates do, making it difficult to evaluate you on your performance. In my experience, women tend to get stuck in their current position or passed over for promotions. It just depends on upper mgmt and who you work for.

Advice to Management

Try to learn what it is your people do to meet the goals of the department and organization. Can't just delegate everything and then sit back and wait.

    I have been working at AutoZone part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy job to do. Flexible hours. Good management. Easily work your way up to parts sales manager.

    Cons

    No incentive to sell. Will take a while to move past a parts sales manager.

    Advice to Management

    Give some incentives to the red shirts to sell the products that gets you your bonus!

    I worked at AutoZone full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interacting with customers and keeping busy, as well as installing certain parts, can be fun.

    Cons

    The pay is poor both for non-managers and managers. There are few incentives to move up in the company, and there is little encouragement and an abundance of criticism from upper management. There seems to be a lack of sufficient concern for providing help for customers, and more concern with making money for the much-higher-ups.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe if upper management demonstrated a little more interest in the regular, everyday store employees who directly interact with the customers, they would see a greater level of customer satisfaction. I believe happy employees who are commended on their strengths as much as they are on their shortcomings are happier and more loyal to the company that they work for. Respect breeds respect.
